Who can see your viewing activity?
So we need secondly the mandala of accomplishment, can it be filled with basic rice…instead of saffron rice?
hi sorry I'm late. I dont see any of the links, can you repost them, Sonam?
Do we need a second mandala pan separate from the mandala of accomplishment on the shrine?
I’m not clear on the relation of the mandala pan to the mandala of accomplishment.. sorry.
You need one mandala set and then a mandala pan for accumulating.The pan is the base of the set, but it is usually sold separately.
The mandala set is one you build up completely and properly and then you put it on the shrine as a support of accomplishment.then you have your mandala pan for accumulation. That is the one you use for practice.
For all those with questions on the mandala, I believe we will have a minute to ask and clarify those questions before we start that sequence.

@John…both mandalas should be the best quality..so saffron rice for the accomplishing mandala is greater merit as saffron rice
Sorry, I just want to get this correct… for the mandala set, I can make some new saffron rice & set it up… but is there a ritual or liturgy I need to use to activate it, or set it up properly, or can I just set it up? Thank you.

@John, 37PT LITURGY https://u.pcloud.link/publink/show?code=XZLVI47ZCAWaxGnntqS3bb1bmlg59h1JxRck
@John you can set up the mandala with saffron rice or precious stones (her at Pema Osel Ling) the mandalas have pearls) precious substance of your choice, after you set it up you can read the liturgy. Or if inclined you can follow the diagram and place the offering while reciting the liturgy.
Are these links somewhere on the dudjom ngondro website?

QUESTION: Sorry, I’m not clear on what is the purpose/ function of the mandala set that I’d place on my altar. How does that relate to the practice of making offerings with the mandala pan? Thanks for your help & sorry for all the questions.
@John If you have Lams Tharchin’s Ngondro Commentary refer to page 32 or if you have the Series 19 Ngondro Teaching DVD Disc 10 Rinpoche covers Mandala. I will ask your question to Choying Wangmo afterwards since she is leading this session. Thank you for your question
Thank you! It says in the text to do the dedication 3 times but I notice in the practice sessions we are only doing it once?
Is there any difference between the words Benza or Vajra?
I also have a question about the 10.000 7 line prayer before starting ….I am a bit confused… Do I need to do the 10,000 7 line prayer before starting the counting of prostrations for accumulation.
You recite Benza and what I have on paper says Vajra.
Thank You, Regina!
QUESTION: In order to work with it properly, I just want to understand what is the symbolism of the mandala set that is on the altar vs just using the mandala pan & making offerings? Thank you.
Regina, Can we say that during Vajrasattva practice it’s the intention that’s most important in our commitment to not commit future negative actions insofar as we are sentient beings and suffer from ignorance and are susceptible to committing negative actions inadvertently ?
Got links thank you! And thank you Choying Wangmo :-)
Cant see those soundcloud links yet Sonam….?
What is the difference from what we’re doing this week, & the ngondro program?
